the Alcohol/Drug Impaired Subject
Course Length: 1 Day (7.5 Hours)
Few challenges to law
enforcement, alcohol/drug treatment and counseling professionals
are as varied or frequent as that posed by attempting to gather
useful information from the impaired person - without triggering
an unpleasant or violent response. This workshop addresses several
of the issues involved and discusses alternate approaches - both
to acquire needed information and to avoid adverse reactions.
Topics include alcohol impairment, compliant vs. antagonistic
personalities, avoiding false information, effects of hangovers
on interviews, triggers to anger when under the influence and
suggestions for improving interviews with impaired persons. Problems
encountered with specific drugs other than alcohol, along with
approaches which improve these interactions, are discussed. Specific
drug use covered includes alcohol, marijuana, amphetamines, cocaine,
crack, heroin, PCP, methamphetamine, LSD, MDMA, Ketamine, Rohypnol,
GHB, psilocybin, steroids, 2C-B and inhalants.
